Posted on: 2nd December 2022

Would you be willing to participate in a shopping interview?

My name is Natalie Wood and I am a postgraduate student at the University of Auckland, New Zealand. I am originally from Meanwood and I have come home to study shopping habits and the function of shopping (and shops) within the community, particularly in relation to the current cost of living crisis. I currently volunteer and research at Your Local Pantry, Meanwood exploring the food pantry as a simulated shop. My thesis is provisionally titled Shopping in Leeds: Embodying the cost of living.

I am looking for willing Interview participants;

  • Are you over 18?
  • Are you a Leeds resident?

Participation in this research would involve a shopping interview where I would accompany you whilst you shop, asking you questions along the way. This interview would also be audio-recorded. Any type of shopping is welcome!

If you are interested in discussing these topics, I invite you to an interview with me that will take no longer than one hour. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please do not hesitate to email me

Approved by the Auckland Health Research Ethics Committee on [28/07/2022] for three years. Reference number [24663].
